17 January 1969. Thought for the Week: ".... for man, responsibility is everything: It is his motive force, his teacher his rewarder and punisher. Without responsibility man no longer has free will, he is no longer perfectible, he is no longer a moral being, he learns nothing, he is nothing. He falls into inertia and no longer counts except as a unit of the herd".
Frederic Bastiat, French legislator commenting over 100 years ago.
VIETNAM WAR FOLLOWS KOREAN PATTERN
"Pentagon leaders anticipate a Korean-type involvement for the U.S. with South Vietnam for the indefinite future, with the Paris peace talks determining the extent". - The Australian, January 14.
The Vietnam "peace" talks in Paris have followed
the very pattern we predicted. This prediction was based upon an understanding
of the Communist concept of revolutionary warfare. The Communists regard
negotiations, not as a means of reaching a settlement of a military
conflict, but as a tactic of total warfare. The Americans suffered more
casualties in Korea after the "peace" talks started than in all the
previous conflict. The same is now happening in Vietnam, with the Americans
and their allies being progressively bled on the battlefield while the
campaign of subversion continues inside America, Australia, New Zealand
and other countries.
Nearly three months have passed since President
Lyndon Johnson made his announcement that there was to be a major curtailment
of American military activity in Vietnam as a preliminary to peace talks
in which the Saigon Government would participate. But ever since the
Communists have stalled, using various tactics. They have been assisted
by controversy between the U.S.A. and the Saigon Government. In the
meantime they have taken the opportunity to build up their military
strength, as witnessed by a report issued in Washington on January 5
by a sub-committee of the House Armed Services Committee. The report
states that since the American bombing of North Vietnam stopped on November
1, supply shipments towards South Vietnam have increased fivefold. Based
upon aerial surveys and photographs, and the testimony of witnesses,
the report charges that these Communist shipments - many of which originated
in the Soviet Union and Red China - "exceed replenishment needs of troops
and the civilian population, and it appears that the North Vietnamese
are establishing a massive logistic system which could be used as a
foundation for future expanded Operations".
The sub-committee reports warns that if talks in Paris collapse, "the bombing halt will have provided the North with a new lease on life, and the conflict will certainly be prolonged". In such an event, it adds "the sub-committee sees no alternative to an all-out military effort to bring the war to a speedy conclusion".
The bitter fruits of the no-win policy in Vietnam are being tasted. These are the same fruits resulting from the general lack of will in the non-Communist world to face the harsh realities about International Communism. This will, has been undermined by the Communists' deadly revolutionary warfare, of which propaganda is a major aspect. Hope of survival depends upon effective counter-measures against this type of warfare.
BATTLE FOR RHODESIA CONTINUES
"The British Prime Minister, Mr. Wilson, warned the Commonwealth Prime Ministers at their conference today that the use of force in Rhodesia would inevitably lead to a bloodbath in southern Africa. No British Government could or would entertain such a proposal, he said". - The Herald, Melbourne, January 11.
The Rhodesian stand, backed by a world-wide pro-Rhodesian movement, has forced Prime Minister Wilson to retreat from his original stand that there would be no British acceptance of Rhodesian independence before "majority rule", and his threat to Prime Minister Ian Smith on HMS Tiger that, the use of force could not be ruled out. The Malaysian Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, is quoted as having warned that if Britian used force against Rhodesia, "the whole British population should rise and create such an uproar that no government in power could withstand it". In opposing any suggestion of force, Prime Minister Gorton was also bearing in mind the rising support for Rhodesia in Australia.
While Mr. Harold Wilson may appear to have retreated on the Rhodesian issue, primarily in order to get some type of settlement for domestic political reasons, there is no evidence that there is to be any relaxing of the international pressure on Rhodesia. Both Kaunda of Zambia and Neyerere of Tanzania openly advocate the use of force against Rhodesia and can be expected to give increasing support to the Communist-trained terrorists operating from bases inside their countries. In the meantime the psychological war against Rhodesia is being stepped up, designed to divide the Rhodesians and to confuse their supporters in other countries.
The following United Press report from Salisbury
appeared in The Australian on January 13, and is typical of reports
recently circulated around the world:
SOVIET SUCCESSFULLY EXPLOITS MIDDLE EAST CRISIS
"Russia is continuing to press for joint action by the U.S., Russia, Britain and France to prevent a new Middle East war". The Australian, January 7.
Superficial observers may accept the current
Soviet suggestions on the Middle East as evidence of a genuine desire
to establish peace in the area. As we have constantly pointed out, there
is not one iota of evidence that the Soviet wishes at present to have
Israel destroyed. The continued existence of Israel is essential for
the Soviet's strategy of exploiting the fears of the Arab world in order
that increasing infiltration can continue.
The Herald (Melbourne) of January 13 reports
President Houari Boumedienne of Algeria as stating on arriving on a
State visit to Morocco that ''the only solution for the Arabs lay in
emulating the struggle of the Vietnamese people".
Once again we recommend a study of Sir John Glubb's book, The Middle East-Crisis (Price 65 cents post free from Box 1052J, Melbourne) for those who wish to gain a realistic understanding of the background to what is now becoming the most explosive area in the world.
"BLACK POWER" ARRIVES IN LONDON" London Sun
Protesters charged the diplomatic missions of South Africa and Rhodesia in London today, smashing windows and fighting a pitched battle with police. The 'march for dignity' in support of Britain's colored population was billed as London's first major demonstration for 'black power"'. - The Herald, Melbourne, January 13.
Reports from London state that the highly organised
attack on South Africa House and Rhodesia House resulted in one of the
most violent street demonstrations ever seen in London. But there is
worse to come. The organisers are quoted as saying, "This is the start
- it is the first time black people have marched in London streets together.
It is a start for next summer".
We trust that Australians carefully note what
happens when races of completely different backgrounds are concentrated
in the one geographical area. The British, a most tolerant people, have
discovered to their dismay that the large non-European influx, which
they have permitted after the Second World War, has now produced a revolutionary
